We would like to extend our Special Thanks to the following for their help and support
in publishing this book:
ECOS and the Executive Council,
Angela DeRose and the Media Committee,
Barry McDowell, Nina Wilmot and the rest of the Student Affairs Staff,
The Triton Tribune for the use of their office space and staff assistance,
All those who submitted candids for our pages, AND all the seniors who contributed
their thoughts and faces to the Senior Section.
We hope that you enjoy this 1988-89 yearbook which we slaved very hard over. We
hope that you will keep in mind that putting a yearbook together is not an easy task,
especially for a small staff. We tried our best to produce the highest quality yearbook
possible with the money, time and resources allotted. Please remember this if you find
any faults within the pages. Thank you.

Mamma and Daddy, I DID IT!
I, Nasir Abbasi, leave behind all my memories — to

less stipend money — sorry!

"THE" sash . . . Adria and Duwa, EARPLUGS; to Tommie,
a "twinkie", love, a decision, and quarters (for Dan too); and
to TKHFBUMGJBJT and the cast of 100's everlasting mem-
I, Bart Allen, leave to Dan Winter the advice to lift
weights 'cause Lou and I won't be there to save you any-
more; to Chris Patton, all the "bangits"; to Ace and Los,

Trail Comic and road rash; and to Dr. Reynolds 1000 red
pens, 300 new plaid shirts.
I, Benn Barr, leave to all my friends the best of luck
in all you do, and don't forget to have a good time while
you're doing it. Seeeee ya!
I, Mark D. Blakeman, leave Betsy (my bike) to anyone
who dares to ride a death trap, my skateboard to Colin who
should keep trying to get a ramp on campus; and to Mr. C,
Fuzzbot, Dogsh — Digger, Fish, John and Dean what's left
of the greenhouse to the Three Amigos tradition alive.
I, Sherry L. Boyer, leave to Lena Wilfalk my undying

bottle of tequila, and a blender; to Susan great study habits;
to Sherry "real food"; and to Eckerd my purple shadow.
Not being of sound mind or body, I, Darryll Dockstader,
fully recognize that at this point and time in my life I have
very little to bequeath. However, if it is in any way possible,
1 would like to somehow give my ability to speak in clear
English to my boss and good friend, Mohammad Torabi.
Maybe, someday you will acquire that ability. Until then.
Praise the Lord.

Two By Two
The theatre department's major
production this year was Richard Rog-
er's, Two by Two. The musical come-
dy told the story of Noah and his ark.
Cast and crew sang and danced their
way through a twenty-two show tour
of Florida, the last four shows being
held in Bininger Theatre. The show
was directed by Professor Richard
Rice and his stage crew included Stage
Manager June Arnini, Sound Techni-
cians, David Lowe and Scott Preston,
and Lighting Technician, Matt Sta-

Chris Rosenberg as Noah and dis-
played the talents of the following Eck-

Colleen O'Mara Rachel
Debbie Stacey Leah
When they weren't working on
Two by Two, the theatre depart-
ment kept busy with many other
projects. These efforts took the
forms of a weekly variety show
called "D'Wolf and Pender-
grass", and a Winter Term pre-
sentation of Shakespeare's
"Comedy of Errors" in Slater's
Woods. In addition one-acts such
as "Roots of Chaos" were pro-
duced throughout the year.

Look out Suzy Chapstick
Auto maintenance, whew!
Oh where, oh where, did that Gummy Bear Go?!
Forever in my Garden
Blossom breathes the night air
And drinks the morning dew
But frost, when it comes early
Hurts many after claiming the few.
And the garden, less the richer
For the loss within its fold
The delicate stem and petals
But a truth remains untold . . .
Spring will follow Winter
And life will bloom again
The garden will rejoice
And greet the sun as friend.
A ship's silhouette in the sunset
Sails hoisted to hall mast
Isolated from the regatta
For its racing days have passed.
Gliding free out towards beyond
Away from bar. and beach, and bay.
It's cutting deeper waters
Where some by chance may stray.
Growing fainter still
Since setting off. without a wave
Bui the memories you left behind
Mean the most of those who save.
Perhaps it's in those moments
When all alone you stand
The traces that are left behind
Can't be washed away like sand.
Gulls fly over the water
And the day begins anew
Time itself sails onward
As we remember you.
This page is dedicated in memory of Bridget Denier and David White.
Thanks for all that you gave us, especially the memories you have left and the chance to know you.
